Opera Web Browser History Search and Links Panel Cross Site Scripting Vulnerabilities

Opera Web Browser is prone to multiple cross-site scripting vulnerabilities because it fails to properly sanitize user-supplied input.

An attacker may leverage these issues to execute arbitrary script code in the browser of an unsuspecting user in the context of the affected site. This may allow the attacker to steal cookie-based authentication credentials, change the browser's settings, and launch other attacks.

Versions prior to Opera Web Browser 9.62 are vulnerable.

NOTE: The 'History Search' issue described here may be related to the 'History Search' issue that was previously described in BID 31842 'Opera Web Browser Multiple Cross Site Scripting Vulnerabilities'.
